Calgary skies are being occupied by surveillance military choppers. Every day they fly low over empty streets, shaking homes with the sound of war. They peruse the public at low altitudes without call or cause. It’s as if we are under martial law.
Meanwhile, CBC and CTC report that Occupy Calgary protesters have gotten the boot and TransCanada will continue getting the loot. A few social justice awakeners down at city hall have to go to court and yet the dirty pipelines of oil are presented as viable and necessary business deals.
In the heart of the knowing at the belly of the beast, Nicole Running Rabbit reports that, “Damages to Olympic Plaza have been paid back to the ‘city of Calgary’ in advance, to the tune of billions of dollars in oil royalties & other non-renewable resources that are scraped out of our mother earth & off the backs of Siksika/Kainai/Peigan/TsuuTina/Nakoda People, while some of us have no clean water to drink in our homes, if we are lucky to even have homes on reservation”
